This is language specific, but like other language-specific packages
this is a package people would specifically search for as 'pandoc' and I
agree, it should be renamed.

I agree.

We should also rename all uses of ghc-pandoc in the same patch.

Ah, for the record, I had searched for pandoc using `guix package -s
pandoc` in the past and didn't find what I was looking for, and so fell
back to a Debian system.  It turns out what I wanted was ghc-pandoc
after all.

But if I would have put a little bit more effort into looking, perhaps I
would have figured that out; I was in a hurry.

Thanks for making this change!

Hi Mike,

Thank you for pointing the issue.

My remark is *not* about the rename which seems fine. For the very
same reason than the "git-annex" software is named 'git-annex' and not
'ghc-git-annex'.


Well, your comment is pointing: a) that the description is badly
written and b) the 'relevance' score is too rough.

The command "guix search pandoc" returns as the highest ranked
package: ghc-pandoc-citeproc with the relevance score of 17. The
package of interest 'ghc-pandoc' appears at the 6th position with a
relevance score of 8. (And after emacs-pandoc-mode, ghc-pandoc-types,
emacs-ox-pandoc and python-pandocfilters; well less relevant packages,
IMO.)
Why? Because the number of occurrences of the term 'pandoc' in
synopsis+description+name.
ghc-pandoc-citeproc: 1+5+1
ghc-pandoc: 0+2+1

To be precise, the score uses weights and so it reads:

ghc-pandoc-citeproc: 3*1 + 2*5 + 4*1 = 17
ghc-pandoc: 3*0 + 2*2 + 4*1 = 8

And the rename bumps the score because there is an additional weight
(5) for exact match (which normally happens only for the 'name'
field).

ghc-pandoc-citeproc: 3*1 + 2*5 + 4*1 = 17
pandoc: 3*0 + 2*2 + 4*1*5 = 24

It apparently fixes the issue and now the package named 'pandoc' will
show up first. But it is an artefact because it is easy* to find other
weights that invalidate this expected ranking; and the current weights
are a working rule of thumbs but not deeply thought, AFAIK.


*For example instead of 5, let choose 2, then the score becomes:
3*0+2*2+4*1*2=12 which is less than 17. Well, not so easy because 2 is
the same as 'description' and it seems less natural; i.e., it appears
more natural to have a high weight for an exact match. But the point
is: it is possible to find another working rule of thumb which will
not return the expected result for all the packages.


The real problem is not the non-obvious name (ghc-pandoc instead of
simply pandoc) but it is: a) some descriptions are badly written and
b) the 'relevance' scoring function is not enough "smart" to detect
them.



All the best,
simon

Commit d4e4a3824d380e576b56a74aa714db205fcc59a4 adds pandoc.

The packages:

 - ruby-pandoc-ruby
 - rapicorn
 - ganeti
 - manuskript
 - emacs-org-web-tools
 - emacs-ox-pandoc

do not use pandoc instead of ghc-pandoc; I do not know if it matters or
if they need to also switch.  More all Haskell packages in
haskell-xyz.scm.


Since ghc-pandoc is still here and even pandoc inherits from it, I
propose to close.

All the best,
simon

If these packages only use the “pandoc” executable they should use the
“pandoc” package instead of “ghc-pandoc”.  “ghc-pandoc” is only meant
for Haskell packages that use Pandoc as a library.  This is a much rarer
case, so we can assume that most packages should use “pandoc” instead of
“ghc-pandoc”.

The only non-Haskell package remaining is ’gnu/packages/mail.scm
(muchsync)’.  Once this package is done (see #43848 [1]), we should be
able to close this bug, I guess.
